When discussing topics such as the Dred Scott case, it’s always interesting to note Republicans were the abolitionist who wanted to end slavery while Democrats were pro slavery and against us having rights until we got them. HBCUs like Howard, Spelman, Moorehouse, Clark, etc are even named after Republicans. Then as we obtained a protected right to vote, we also obtained a change in party policy as the Democrats began to find ways to capitalize on our vote, and Republicans implemented the Southern Strategy to garner votes of those with typical, racist, southen attitudes to win over Southern states. History shows, the people have and always be pawns to either party. What’s most important to them are their interests and our votes.
